I also try to find: cos(a-b)+cos(a+b) how do I do this, is there anything I'm missing?

You can't do anything more, since the angles are completely arbitrary.

Hold on, I forgot about this:

a = $\displaystyle \epsilon + \alpha$
b = $\displaystyle \epsilon$ September 13th, 2018, 04:16 AM   #5

That's nice, thank you! September 13th, 2018, 01:39 PM   #6

Are $\alpha$ and $\epsilon$ related? If not, you have a simple change of variables with no more information. September 14th, 2018, 02:08 PM   #7

Ah, yeah you're right. No alpha and epsilon are unrelated. Tags b or sinab, cos, fraction, simplify, sin, sina Thread Tools Show Printable Version Email this Page Display Modes Linear Mode Switch to Hybrid Mode Switch to Threaded Mode
